A great screen upgrade for 001 or 101 units!

worked as intended.

that went in relatively easily.
works perfectly and makes my ags 001 a much better thing to play on.
like so many others I wish the game boy advance logo could have been there, but there are probably good reasons it's not.

Tricky connector

The screen is great , but upon installation I
Found myself having to connect screen with battery to test connection, so I don't have to keep taking it apart. It took about 6 trys and finally the connector sat correctly but the 5 previous times it appeared to be sitting correctly , I thought it was broken. But the 6th time is the charm! Wish they told me that when I was young, here I am thinking it was 3rd times the charm my whole life, 😆 and this is pertaining to the connection between the monitor and the flat cable that connects to the back of the monitor

Amazing screen

The quality of IPS Screen for GBA SP looks fantastic and no ghosting and no noticeable input lag plus it’s way a lot cheaper than the AGS-101 to get! Simple stuff! I highly recommend.

Excellent replacement!

I have had my two gameboy advance SPs since I was a child, and I want d to begin a new hobby, so I tried out upgrading one of my systems with a new screen. The instructions provided on the box QR code we’re clear and easy to understand. I had a shell I bought to replace the original, but didn’t like the quality so I used it as the practice shell for trimming to make the screen fit properly. The replacement turned out great! I’ve already ordered a new shell and buttons and I can’t wait to fully assemble my first custom gameboy advance SP. I will definitely be choosing Retro Modding again when I’m ready to work on my second system!
